Somnium: Launchpad Installation

Concordia Launch Pad, Portland OR

Somniumcomposed, programmed and performed in collaboration with Margaret Schedel,  D.j. Malinowski , as an installation for Concordia Launch Pad.


This installation version of Somnium uses Ableton Live, Max, Stream Deck and Leap Motion. Stream Deck was used to pick the "boss planet" melody. Leap motion, (posture indication drawings by Sam Potter) was used to control the accompaniment volume (pitch of the hand) and chromaticism (roll of the hand) for each planet. Accompaniment is controlled by the relative position of each planet to the "boss." Gesture control by Glover (mimu), data parsing in Max.
